In this episode, I’ll be sharing some tips on creating an engaging and effective introduction for your podcast. Whether you’re just starting out or looking to improve your existing intro, I’ve got you covered.

First things first, let’s talk about music. Using copyrighted music in your intro can be a big no-no, so I suggest using a royalty-free music platform like Pond5. Choosing music that fits your branding and sets the right tone for your podcast is crucial, as it’s the first thing your listeners will hear.

Another important aspect to consider is the length of your intro. Keeping it short and sweet, ideally around 30 seconds or less, is key to keeping your listeners engaged. You don’t want to lose their interest before you even get to the main content!

Including a call to action in your intro can be beneficial, but be sure to keep it minimal and easy to follow. Whether it’s asking your listeners to subscribe or simply encouraging them to stick around for the upcoming content, make it quick and simple.

Introducing yourself as the host and reminding your listeners which podcast they’re tuning into is also important, as not everyone will start from episode one. This will help make it easier for new listeners to connect with you and your podcast.

Consider switching up your intro from time to time to keep things fresh and exciting. Having a different intro for each series or even a one-off intro for special announcements or events can add variety and keep your listeners engaged.
